When the New York Jets trounced the New England Patriots on Sunday, September 20th it was not just the local fans that enjoyed the huge array of available food the Izod Center sells during sports events. Thanks to our good friend, Syd Mandelbaum, founder of Rock and Wrap It Up!, local food pantries and soup kitchens are able to feed hundreds of people with the concessions’ leftovers.
As we picked up our local paper (The N.J. Star-Ledger) this past Sunday what a great surprise it was to see the front page headline which described Syd’s work. Since it is true that a picture is often worth a thousand words, we suggest you follow this link to the great video which tells this story.
Now that Syd has taken on the food vendors inside the stadium, we wonder if anyone has thought about the bounty of food that goes to waste out in the parking lot where tailgate parties abound?
